Many of today’s most popular sectionals are covered with fabric in a solid tone. Pattern can then be added with artwork, pillows and other decorative details. Below we see the Cielo II 2-Piece Sectional Sofa from CB2, consisting of an armless loveseat and a chaise. A gallery wall is the backdrop for this next modern living room featuring a sectional sofa. The Walton 3-Piece L-Shaped Sectional from West Elm is an inviting addition, thanks to its numerous pillows. Drape a throw over the arm for a cozy touch. Sectional sofas truly thrive in modern eclectic spaces, especially when draped with textural elements such as pillows and fuzzy throws. The contemporary look of many sectionals can be softened with accessories such as a plush rug.The tufted Tillary 8-Piece Sectional from West Elm is the perfect addition to the warehouse-style room below. While some may have gone with an ultra industrial look in this space, a softer vibe is achieved with the help of the sectional–the tufts add a feminine, elegant touch. A sectional in a vibrant color can serve as the focal point of a room, as shown by CB2’s Ditto Peacock Sectional in the modern eclectic space that follows. Bring on the blue. The next featured room is filled with modern details, yet the plush blue sectional adds a soft touch, especially since its velvety texture beckons you to dive in for some major couch potato time. Above we‘ve seen just how sectional sofas can thrive in both ultra modern spaces and more eclectic ones. But sectionals shine in chic, upscale interiors as well. Add some reflective pendant lighting, intriguing artwork and a dramatic floral statement, and you have a room that ushers in a touch of glamour! Below we see the Tillary 8-Piece Sectional from West Elm.
It is not the amount of space that is available that matters, but how you put it to use. The couch here can easily host an entire family, and the wall-mounted television ensures that you do not waste any foot room with unnecessary entertainment units. For those struggling to settle on a television channel in their current living room, this offers a good alternative on a football weekend. We have previously featured some stylish attic bedrooms and fun game rooms, but an attic living space can also be put to multiple uses. Those having a hard time concentrating on their favorite page-turner this holiday season can use this space to get away from the noise and the activity. The smart choice of a bookshelf here puts the available square footage to good use and works around the problem of a lack of vertical space.
No floor space? No problem. Urbancase‘s Loll Wallbanger (inspired by the Harvey Wallbanger, a drink invented back in the 1950s by acclaimed mixologist Duke Antone) is a wall-mounted compact bar with a hinged panel door that flips open to become a surface to stir up some cocktails, then closes back up to conceal your spirits when the party’s over. The smart apartment addition comes in eight colors and is made of 100% recycled high-density polyethylene from plastic milk jugs. If you like your drinks with a touch of glamour, the Terrace Bar Cart by West Elm has the sparkle you’re looking for. Because it's on wheels, it can rove wherever the party goes, and its delicate design keeps it from weighing down small spaces.
This is a perfect example of how symmetry can elevate the appeal of the small attic room. The twin table lamps in orange, the placement of the stools and even the chandelier in the context of the backdrop play a major role in defining the ambiance of the room. Repeating an accent color in more than one place and using visual symmetry can greatly enhance the appeal of such small spaces. Finally, we have a large attic that has enough space for a dedicated second kitchen, a pool table and a fabulous living area. A window seat in the attic is also a great choice and gives you an additional seating option when you invite guests over for a game night. Remember, though, that you will need to take the necessary permits and check the building code requirements before giving your attic that much needed makeover this holiday season.
We always talk of the living room as a monolithic unit. Every little detail in the room is like a small piece of the larger jigsaw. Disturb one and you might have to end up creating an entirely new picture! The fabulous and comfy couch is definitely at the center of this delightful setting and is inarguably the most important piece of decor in any living space. A couch can define the style of your living room and as an extension that of your kitchen and dining space as well. It pretty much lays down the marker for everything else and is the one large addition that can transform the living room ambiance.
